KPS AG: Ad hoc Release pursuant to Article 15 Securities Trading Law (WpHG)

Wednesday, 20 January 2016

KPS AG, Germany’s leading management consultant for business transformation and process optimization, once again significantly increased Group sales and EBIT. Sales went up by 10.6% to 122.9 million and EBIT by 11.5% to 18.6 million.
According to the provisional figures (IFRS) for the previous business year 2014/2015, KPS AG once again succeeded in significantly increasing sales and EBIT.
Group sales at 122.9 million euros (previous year: 111.1 million) were 11.8 million above the equivalent year-earlier amount. Exceeding the 120 million threshold enabled the ambitious targets from the previous business year to be significantly exceeded.
A gratifying increase in EBIT of 1.9 million to 18.6 million euros (previous year: 16.7 million) was achieved compared with the previous year.
Performance of sales and earnings was also very positive during the first quarter of the new business year 2015/2016.
If the forecast economic data for the year 2016 does not undergo significant change, the Executive Board is assuming that the business year 2015/2016 will continue on a trajectory with a significant increase in sales and earnings.
Additional figures and details on performance of the company will be provided in the Annual Report 2014/2015 published on 29 January 2016.
